The spectacle will be questionable, but unforgettable.

Aspiring American filmmakers like to portray Russia as an inappropriate country where freedom of speech does not exist and human rights are violated. However, Western directors fail to see the beam in their own eyes, because throughout the history of cinema, it was in the United States in the last century that the distribution of ‘unwanted’ films was banned almost every year.

Song of the South caused significant controversy upon its premiere due to its depictions of race relations and use of stereotypes. For decades, the film was criticized for portraying slavery in a romantic light and for using language and images that were offensive to African Americans.

Under pressure from public organizations such as the NAACP, Disney decided not to release the film on home video in the United States and limited its theatrical release.

“The Sadist” was banned in several states due to the film’s extremely violent content. The film is about three teachers who become victims of a psychopath and his girlfriend. Scenes of violence and unmotivated cruelty provoked condemnation and led to restrictions on distribution.

“Pink Flamingos” shocked viewers with its extremely explicit and shocking scenes, including cannibalism and bestiality. Due to this content, the film was banned in several cities and states in the United States, as well as in several other countries. The main reason for the ban was extreme scenes of violence and sexual content, which were considered unacceptable to a wide audience.

For the same reasons, Last Tango in Paris was temporarily banned from showing in the United States due to explicit sex scenes that caused public outrage. The film contained scenes of violence and sexual coercion, which led to a ban in some countries and severe censorship in others. In the United States, the film received widespread attention and was the subject of numerous debates about the limits of what is acceptable in cinema.

‘Faces of Death’ was a hit on pirated video tapes in Russia in the late 1990s, but the documentary was banned for Americans and residents of several European countries. The film was a collection of scenes of real and fake deaths, which disgusted and alarmed viewers.

Surprisingly, Quentin Tarantino’s favorite horror film miraculously escaped ban, but watching it can make even seasoned moviegoers vomit.
